What is the source of these words?
من رزقه الله امرأة صالحة فقد أعانه على شطر دينه، فليتق الله في الشطر الباقي
Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as a Hadith, on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever has been blessed with a pious wife from Allah, then [Allah] has certainly assisted him [to fulfil] half of his Din. So he should fear Allah in the remaining half.”
(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 5101. Also see: Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 42)
Imams Hakim and Tabarani (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith with very slight difference in the wording.
(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 161, Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 976)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
